Jackson County government received a USDA Rural Economic Development Innovation (REDI) grant for the purpose of creating and implementing economic development action plans. A community needs assessment was conducted in December 2019. Based on community feedback, Jackson County government developed an action plan to explore broadband access opportunities and to support the implementation and adoption of broadband in the county. Broadband connectivity refers to access to high-speed internet that is reliable and affordable. Broadband access is important for economic activity, consumers, schools, and health care. The Jackson County REDI grant and community action plan will position the community to access other funding opportunities to implement and adoption broadband.
